The 1967 Ford Bronco Proves You Can Blend Old-School With Modern Performance

The 1967 Ford Bronco Proves You Can Blend Old-School With Modern Performance

Ford shocked the world quite a few times these past years. First it was with the all-electric versions of the Mustang and the F-150, then with the unveil of the new generation Bronco – a name that made history in the past, but also with the announcement that the Mustang will soon be all-electric. And while the seventh generation Mustang was just unveiled, and it is still offered with a V-8 engine, the Bronco is already writing history. There are people out there that think the first-generation Bronco was better. If you happen to be among these people, what if you could have the best of both worlds?

A 1967 Ford Bronco With A Modern Mustang Engine

The 1967 Ford Bronco – aka the first generation – was offered with a 2.8-liter straight six engine that delivered a total of 105 horsepower. In 1966, Ford also added a 200-horsepower 4.7-liter small block V-8 engine. But the model we have here is not offered with either of those engines. Instead, it features a Mustang-sourced, 5.0-liter, fuel-injected V-8 engine mated to a five-speed automatic transmission with a B&M MegaShifter. We don’t know how much the V-8 delivers in the case of the Bronco, but it was updated with an all-new Painless Wiring harness system with computer, inline fuel pump, gas tanks, aluminum 4 core radiator, Advance Adapters transfer case, custom dual mufflers, and a new exhaust system with chrome end pipes.

What Other Changes Were Made?

Is not only the engine that was updated for this Bronco. It also suffered quite a few updates inside and out. The SUV was recently finished in Ford Grabber Blue paint with contrasting white elements. New chrome elements, like the bumpers, side mirrors, door handles, Bronco emblems, and headlight trim give it an even more sporty touch. The Bronco also received new glass, tint, weather strips, window channels, and headlights.

In the cabin, the current owner opted to go with high-back captain front seats and a contrasting rear bench. He also wanted a more modern feeling, so he added a Dakota Digital LED 6-gauge instrument cluster, heater, and a JVC Bluetooth/USB/CD head unit. Of course, the Bronco is the perfect car for off-roading, so safety comes first. For this it was equipped with a roll cage, tow hitch, electric wipers, locking lift gate, and front and back seatbelts.

The car only has 3,500 miles on the odometer – since the engine was replaced – and is available for auction with no reserve.

FAQ

Q: What kind of camera do bikers use?

Many bikers use GoPro because of the huge amount of mounting options they produce, making it easy to attach to any helmet or any bike.

Q: Where do you put your camera on your motorcycle helmet?

Most cameras are mounted on top of the helmet, but they can also be mounted on the side. If it’s a 360° camera, then on top would be best.

Q: Are GoPros allowed on motorcycle helmets?

At the moment, there is no legislation that says you can’t mount an action camera on a helmet, although the F.I.M., the international motorsport governing body, has outlawed them in competition due to the increased risk of injury in the event of an accident.
